When Clement first came bent his family, everyone could see he was frightened of rejection and was taking a number of the abusive reactions out of fear. The boy has been through “prayer” sessions and has even been threatened with the hope he would “change his mind” about who he’s. However, the boy has managed to navigate the bumpy road and remain respectful even to his homophobic grandmother MaNtuli. that’s why Skeem Saam fans were thrilled to listen to Clement finally put MaNtuli in her place within the latest episode.


Clement called out MaNtuli for her homophobia, and while the “talking back” a part of what he did is usually seen as disrespect in black households, fans applauded him for doing it. MaNtuli has been bullying Clement and her children for years and fans were glad someone was finally giving her a bit of their mind about it. Here are a number of the highest reactions: Skeem Saam viewers have given props to the soapie for brilliantly portraying the continued struggle members of the LGBTQI+ community need to undergo after they publicly announce their sexuality through Clement’s current storyline. Fans of the SABC1 soapie are watching as MaNtuli and Sthoko “unravel” at the news that Clement is gay. Poor Clement couldn’t have foreseen that his grandma’s “Abantu bazothini syndrome” would be so bad that she would want to chase him out of the house for revealing he’s gay. Even worse, Clement was deeply hurt that his mother wasn’t as supportive of him as he had hoped. Luckily, both Dennis and Pretty are supportive towards him. Hundreds of Skeem Saam viewers have taken to social media to point out their appreciation to the cast and crew for telling a crucial story.
